About our Ministry

Jesus Every Day Ministries is lead by Jed Snyder, long time pastor, counselor, teacher, writer and missions enthusiast.

Jed has led churches for over thirty years, has counseled many people some of whom were seriously wounded inwardly, has traveled on short term missions trips, teaching and encouraging local people as well as the missionaries and other teachers.

Having grown up as a missionary “kid” in Bolivia, he experienced cross-cultural life gaining a deep appreciation for differences while learning to accept the people as having similar spiritual and emotional needs as his own.  As a husband, father and grandfather he has been able to contribute while continually learning.  God has given him a passion to share His Word with others personally, in small groups and from many different pulpits.

Ministries) is to promote the Christian faith and the gospel of Jesus Christ by activities including but not limited to preaching, teaching, providing pastoral counseling, ministering to the spiritually lost and needy, providing worship activities and the creation and distribution of Christian materials.

What Kind Of Tongue Do You Have? - Johnny Hunton


The following little poem expresses the desires of Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc.

So Send I You - Margaret Clarkson

So send I you to labour unrewarded
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing
So send I you to toil for Me alone

So send I you to bind the bruised and broken
Over wandering souls to work, to weep, to wake
To bear the burdens of a world a-weary
So send I you to suffer for My sake

So send I you to loneliness and longing
With heart a-hungering for the loved and known
Forsaking kin and kindred, friend and dear one
So send I you to know My love alone

So send I you to leave your life's ambition
To die to dear desire, self-will resign
To labour long, and love where men revile you
So send I you to lose your life in Mine

So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred
To eyes made blind because they will not see
To spend, though it be blood to spend and spare not
So send I you to taste of Calvary

"As the Father hath sent me, so send I you"

Can You Help?

We want to make a comprehensive list of service agencies (especially Christian ones) in the Midlands of South Carolina. Will you email me contact information so I can get in touch with such organizations? I have a questionnaire to send them to evaluate their trustworthiness for being listed.

Thanks,
Dr. Jed Snyder

What is Failure?

"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be." - John Wooden

For those who may not know, John Wooden was one of the most successful basketball coaches in university history. He knew about change. He coached hundreds of ball players to change so they could function better both personally and for the team.

How should I witness to my coworkers?

When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer and set a good example in your work ethic by working “as to the Lord” (Col. 3:23). When others around you grumble and complain, if you have a calm, forgiving, steadfast spirit, it will make an impression. As you respond in a Christ-like way to angry coworkers and stressful circumstances, people will see a difference in your life.

If your boss forbids it, don’t witness on work time. Instead, keep a pile of Million Dollar Bills or some other tract on your desk but don’t give them out. If someone asks for one, let them take it. Displaying a favorite Scripture or a devotional calendar, or quietly reading your Bible during lunchtime, may prompt others to inquire about your faith.

To not infringe on your employer’s time, invite unsaved coworkers out to lunch (not the opposite sex) and witness to them there. Just ask for their thoughts on what happens after death. That will let you know if they are open to the gospel. If you detect contention, apologize and instead use closet prayer. Make a list of workers and uphold them before God, asking for divine openings.

In the meantime, let your love shine. Always be friendly and courteous, and show genuine interest in your coworkers’ lives. Share their joys and sorrows by congratulating them in their good times and offering to pray for them in their bad times. Be sure you do pray for them, then follow up by asking them about the situation you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern. If coworkers are discussing what they did during the previous weekend, you can share your excitement about attending church services or a special church event. Ask about their plans for celebrating Christmas or Easter; be nonjudgmental of their answer, and be ready to explain why you celebrate as you do.

Bringing home-baked goods or leaving a small gift with a note on a coworker’s desk can sometimes have a greater impact than a thousand eloquent sermons. We can show our faith by our works. Others may not like a tree of righteousness, but they cannot help but like its fruit.

For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. 1 Peter 2:15

Ministry Update - Widely Scattered, But Same Work

Ken and Lilia Rose work in the Philippines. Noreen Corey works in Equatorial Guinea on the continent of Africa and Jed and Betty work in the United States on the continent of North America. It is a great source of encouragement to know that your prayers are touching such widely scattered areas of the world. Your financial gifts help to keep us all giving out the same glorious message; Jesus Christ, God the Son, is “the way, the truth, and the life.” All who trust him as Savior will one day be united in heaven enjoying him, the other saints, and the angelic host forever.

Ken has written of their own situation describing the need for tires for their multi-purpose vehicle so vital to carrying people and supplies. He has additionally described the need for roofing for their home in addition to the usual needs for their growing young children of school supplies, clothing and health care. Please ask our gracious Father in heaven to provide these needs in ways that will help the Rose family and bring glory to Christ among the people.

Noreen has written of the needs of the deaf children in her school. She has mentioned the need for qualified, Christian staff to serve as instructors and other care givers. All of these people require the same things that each of us needs, food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and the less obvious, but equally important concerns of spiritual and emotional support.

Thank you for helping these precious servants of Jesus Christ as you also help Betty and me in our efforts to serve others as we seek to serve our Lord. The Interim Pastoral work at Augusta Street Church in West Columbia seems to be progressing well. Pray, please that the Lord will fill and empower me and all who teach and lead. Also uphold the outreach efforts being made to grow the church family numerically. The teaching in the Central Midlands Transitional Retreat for homeless veterans also is a challenge that appears to be bearing fruit. The weekly men’s Bible study is a very precious time of sharing and learn for each of us men who attend. My book publishing agent requests prayer as she seeks publishers for me and for other authors whom she represents. I also am writing an inspirational column that is offered for publication in several places on a weekly basis.

God is at work and you are part of it. Your gifts are a very sweet offering to God for us.


What a Great Impression

Dr. Jed N. Snyder, Pastor, Augusta Street Church, West Columbia

President, Jesus Every Day Minisitries

Impressions that people make often are the setting for our acceptance, or not acceptance, of what they are saying. In our current USA political climate, most of us, I believe, have not had a good impression of any of the political presidential candidates. Being obnoxious is the impression from one. Being dishonest is the impression from another. Being out of touch is the impression of a third.

It would be wonderful if we could have a leader, not a political leader as we understand such today, from whom we can obtain a good impression, or even a great one. Fortunately, this is what we get when we remember the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

When Jesus showed his compassion and power by helping hurting people, he was attacked as doing so by the evil power of Satan. His brilliant response was that when a “house” or family or political party is divided against itself, it will not stand. Additionally, he observed that many leaders are more concerned about their outward appearance than about what is inside. This reminds me of those silly communities that whitewashed the facades of the buildings along the route where a leader would travel. Such hypocrisy seems popular today.

Here is how the Bible speaks of these folk: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Matthew 23:27-28

It is difficult to evaluate your own impression. A spouse or close friend is likely to be more objective than you yourself. May each of us give consideration to our impressions. We will be happier if we do.


Noreen Corey's Update

JULY 2016
Dear Family and Friends
Greetings from New York. It is great to be home for a break again this summer. The school year ended with exam week, a road trip to the beach and report card day. The students are progressing in their studies and skill levels, and we continue to instill Godly values and God's truth(s) into their hearts and lives. One mother visited on a day that we had a missionary from Mexico to do a Bible teaching with the kids and later, he met with her privately and she accepted Christ as her personal Savior. Please pray that she will seek God with her whole heart and grow in the faith.

We have met new little ones that we hope will enroll next year. Also, we will try to get back students that were not able to enroll this past school year. It would be great if we could register at least 60 students.

In terms of finances, I cannot count on local donations in Equatorial Guinea; so as Jed mentioned I really need to boost my monthly support. I have begun to contact Deaf communities/churches in the greater Syracuse area to see if I can present the work being done in E.G. while I am stateside. Also, have asked a few churches to collect school materials and supplies for us to decrease my spending for summer inventory to be shipped back to Africa in September. The GoFundMe account that my home church put up has raised $900.00 to date. A friend on the West coast is going to post on another fund raising site at the end of the summer. Praying that the Lord will touch more individuals to give on a monthly schedule.

A local official in Bata has promised us the use of a second bus, since ours is full. He has also said that he would assist us fiancially and help us get noticed in the community. We are praying that he will follow up with his recent verbal commitment.

 
Prayer Requests

• Health and protection for all students and staff. The caretaker's wife, Fatima, is pregnant, pray for normal development and growth of the baby and that Fatima will not get malaria during this time.

• A larger finance base for the school.

• Qualified teachers coming in to the country to teach the higher primary grades.

• For greater discernment and wisdom on my part to take the project to the next level.

• Salvation for Angelina (our new representative), Francisca (has taken an interest in us and is now helping me with some administrative work that needs to be done), and our caretaker and his wife, for the parents of our students and for decisions among the students.


Thank you for your work that keeps me on the field.


Love and Prayers, Noreen

 

Greetings from the Philippines - What Happened in 2016

Thank you for your prayers and assistance. It has been a great help to the ministry to have you praying for the Lords work and helping us out managing the finances.

I am now working together with a group of pastors from Ubay. We often get together for church programs and I have been preaching in various churches in Ubay. They also help with staff for the many youth programs that we run at our church.

Thanks to the help of a pastor friend we have started a discipleship training program and a music ministry training program at church.

I have put together a list of some of the things that happened in 2016

Daniel had an operation to remove a tooth from the roof of his mouth so he could be fitted with braces sometime in the future.

We replaced ¼ of the roof of our house including the wood. We found some better quality corrugated iron in Tagbilaran. Hopefully this will last longer than the thin GI available locally. All the wood that was replaced came from trees we milled with a chainsaw. We treated the wood with solignum and then painted it to protect it from termites and other insects. Many of the trees we used were trees we planted ourselves.

I traveled to Australia to attend the funeral service of Garry Eadon (my brother in law). I was able to meet again with a lot of old friends and for the first time in years have a family reunion. Thanks to the generosity of many friends and relatives I was able to have a lot of books, clothing, laptops, musical instruments and other items sent to the Philippines.

We also hosted a mission trip with a team of young people from Australia. LaRaine, Ashley, Jackson, Tyler and Tom came and helped run an evangelistic Daily Vacation Bible Program on Jao Island.

We guided the local youth of our church as they ran several other Daily Vacation Bible School programs this year.

James is now in college studying Electronics Engineering at Mapua in Manila. This is one of the only schools in the Philippines that has ABET(international) accreditation. James living expenses and tuition in Manila cost about $2000 (US) per term (4 terms per year). We have been very blessed to have this opportunity for James. We will need to find some more sponsors to help cover this in order for him to continue.

Daniel is studying in the 8th grade in San Jose High School. Timothy is in Grade 1 at the Baptist school.

Thank you for your constant prayers,
Ken, Lilia, James, Daniel, and Timothy Rose
